ALA Grants--Libraries Transforming Communities: Focus on Small and Rural Libraries

Deadline: December 2, 2020

The American Library Association (ALA) invites libraries in small and rural communities to apply for grant funding to help them address issues of concern in their communities through a conversation.

Up to 650 U.S. libraries in small and rural communities will receive $3,000, online professional development, and resources to tackle issues ranging from media literacy to COVID-19 safety to unemployment. Grants will be awarded in two waves in 2020 and 2021. Applicants must have a membership with either the American Library Association OR the Association for Rural & Small Libraries. This opportunity is open to all types of libraries serving small and/or rural communities in the U.S. and U.S. territories. The Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) defines libraries serving small communities as those with a legal service area population of 25,000 or less and a rural community as one that is more than, or equal to, five miles from an urbanized area.
